Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Seasons Past + Demonic Tutor is a value engine with Tasigur. You already have Demonic which is great. For control, Past can alone fill your hand up with cards and Demonic can keep tutoring for Past. You have some control over what cards you recur with Past which is excellent with a control strategy. Past + Demonic is better with an infinite mana combo, but you don't need this combo to get excellent value from the two cards.
Speaking of infinite mana combos you already have Bloom Tender which is also great and if you enchant it with Freed from the Real this can be infinite mana since then Bloom can tap for at least two colors one of which is blue which can untap Tender with Freed netting you at least one mana each time you tap Tender.
Narset, Parter of Veils , Ashiok, Dream Render , Karn, the Great Creator is the trifecta of powerful opponent disruptive Planeswalkers who are great with control. Ashiok is especially good since it can be a repeatable source of self-mill to feed Tasigur and shutting down your opponents from using most tutors is very controlling in Commander. Flux Channeler with all the noncreature spells can proliferate these Planeswalkers which is worth it.
Nezahal, Primal Tide is a fantastic finisher creature for control with Tasigur especially in multiplayer Commander. Discarding cards to protect Nezahal is good with Tasigur. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is more expensive price, but flash it in surprising your opponents or it's one of the best creatures to reanimate with Animate Dead . Animate can also reanimate an opponent creature which makes it very versatile for two drop reanimation in multiplayer Commander.
Deathrite Shaman is a good control creature in multiplayer Commander. Repeatable exile of your opponents or your own cards for value. Runic Armasaur can give you repeatable draw just by being on the battlefield and it has fat toughness which is good as a blocker. Blood Artist can alone shut down an opponent infinite creature combo. Gives you value when a board wipe happens since Artist triggers when any creature including himself dies. A source of repeatable life gain can be helpful.
The manabase is where you should really look for upgrades. The current manabase isn't for a $500 deck it's for a much lower budget deck. There's some good lands (Tower, Orchard, Coast), but most lands are subpar. Some lands within the budget to consider adding:
- more Forests
- Llanowar Wastes
- Underground River
- Ash Barrens
- Sunken Hollow
- Cephalid Coliseum
- Reliquary Tower
- Woodland Cemetery
- Hinterland Harbor
- Drowned Catacomb
- Twilight Mire
I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.

Hand of the Praetors is good way to repeatedly give your opponents infect. Praetors triggers on cast of an Infect creature which can take advantage of the interaction of Shrieking Drake with Yarok. With Yarok Drake gets two bounce triggers, first one bounces itself and the second can bounce any other creature you control with Infect.
Yarok + Shrieking Drake + Cloud of Faeries + four lands equals infinite mana by tapping and untapping those four lands with two Cloud triggers. Use this infinite mana with Viral Drake / Merfolk Skydiver for infinite proliferate after you have given all your opponents a poison counter. You're constantly casting both Cloud and Drake meaning that each time can you trigger Inexorable Tide as another way for infinite proliferate.
Should consider adding a few more dual lands and cutting some basic lands. Cabal Coffers is displayed twice in the manabase which is not allowed in a Commander deck. Sandsteppe Citadel has white mana in it's color identity which isn't allowed because Yarok doesn't have white in it's color identity. Llanowar Wastes , Yavimaya Coast , Breeding Pool could replace three Forests since they can be tapped turn one to make green mana. Hinterland Harbor and Drowned Catacomb are the other Sultai Check lands and they could replace two Islands. With 34 creatures Guardian Project can be good repeatable draw especially since it triggers Yarok, you draw two cards when the creature ETB.
Good luck with your deck.

You have a cool flavorful concept with Vorel of the Hull Clade . If I may suggest a great resource for starting out in commander, the Command Zone has a great video for this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJ6m_3J1hjI
The general ratios they suggest like 10 ramp, 10 card draw, 5 single target removal etc are pretty good to go by in EDH.
Looking at your decklist, you may want to lean more into green's natural strength of land-based ramp as opposed to artifacts like Simic Cluestone or Manalith . Cards like Rampant Growth , Farseek , and Cultivate are format staples as they are some of the most efficient ways of ramping/fixing mana, and your mana dorks like ( Llanowar Elves are susceptible to a creature wrath/board-wipe like Wrath of God . As well, if you are looking to synergize with Vorel of the Hull Clade , cards like Pyramid of the Pantheon or Astral Cornucopia fulfill dual purpose of matching the theme and ramping out your big hydras.
For card draw, your list seems to be a little on the light side, however luckily since you are in blue, you have the best options available to you. Going along with the +1/+1 counter theme with Hydras, a card like Tezzeret's Gambit may serve you well by both drawing cards and enhancing the creatures you have on board. Since your list includes so many big creatures, a card like Rishkar's Expertise or Soul's Majesty will be overperformers, drawing you 5 cards or more at a time.
You do have a healthy number of Mana dorks, but even still your curve is a little on the high-side, as most of your hydras will actually be cast for 5+ mana. I would bring up your land count to 37 or 38, and some great lands that could fill those slots are Hinterland Harbor , Yavimaya Coast , Oran-Rief, the Vastwood , and Blast Zone . If you have the budget for it, Breeding Pool is always nice, and can be fetched with Farseek directly into play.
With regards to cards to cut to make room for these, The Chain Veil is one of the first I question being on the list. It is fairly overpriced and doesn't interact with your hydra theme. A card like Open the Gates is the perfect card to replace with Rampant Growth or Farseek as in EDH, a land directly to the battlefield will be better at most parts of the game.
Overall, I'm not sure what your meta is like with regard to competetiveness or what your background in Magic is like, but I think the suggestions above will enhance your list. Definitely do your research and I'm sure you will find cards that are better than the ones i've suggested.
I hope I didn't come off as overly-critical as that wasn't my intent. Welcome to the format! And happy brewing!

Fetches would be nice for sure but unfortunately i just dont have ANY in the entire WUBRG Color pie... The manabase isnt exactly competitive (neither is my Modern environment/competition) but it appears to be playable in the repeated Naya Zoo matchups I've been playtesting; I've been losing more often than winning but I dont think its mana related and moreso my spell list...im hoping with the addition of Dawn Charm ill be able to stave off the topdecked Lightning Bolt / Lightning Helix now... However I do have a few Expedition Map s not doing anything that I can certainly put in here to help out my Gatecreeper Vine ! I'll see if that helps.... I actually saw a Primeval Titan at the LGS I got my 2x Hinterland Harbor s from and almost bought it with this deck in mind but I decided against it because I dont really think I have the space to add any means to protect him/give him haste... but maybe?... its kinda a neat idea? but it might end up costing me changing the direction/focus of the deck kinda like you were alluding too... I mainly thought He'd just speed up Maze's End and didnt even consider his synergy with Field of the Dead ... Im kinda having a love/hate for that card so far... the extra chump blockers are really nice sometimes but Whelming Wave kinda nonbos with it and sometimes I just wish it was another copy of Mazes End... Im gonna keep tinkering/playtesting with this list to make it better; thanks again!

I definitely wanna pick up 2x more Hinterland Harbor and maybe look into the cycling lands from amonket/fast lands... currently this is the best I have but Im looking to improve the mana base with about anything short of Misty Rainforest in price... Magosi, the Waterveil is an attempt to squeeze in a VERY situational Savor the Moment / Time Warp into the mana base... im not exactly sold on it however if I have open mana/fogs in hand to negate the opponents extra turn sometimes it can end up being a game winning/win more maneuver later....sometimes...but is more often to my determinant with the opponent playing Field of Ruin soon after I give them an extra turn and i just end up giving them a free turn... It just needs to go.
I really love Howling Mine in theory but letting the opponent pick up there deck usually just ensures them coming up with an answer to beat me.... I agree Narset, Parter of Veils might be a much better choice. Im a little bit torn on Explore ... its super powerful but definitly performs better when Im running 24+ lands perhaps I could consider running higher CMC to get better value from it with things like you said like Riftwing Cloudskate ? but otherwise if I have a lower cmc curve as well as a lower mana count it should probably just be a cantrip like Opt .
I do have a few Eternal Witness laying around so maybe with the addition of at least 4 more fogs and 2-3 E.W. I'll have a lot more resilience... but Cryptic Command / Snapcaster Mage /fetches are gonna be just wishful thinking for this deck... dont have any/not willing to buy at this time... some day though... ive spent so much money over the years on cheeky "budget" cards that I could have totally have had a full playset of snappy/command by now :/
nice catch with Spell Queller in the Spirits game...an oversight on my part that has to be addressed... ive ran Raking Canopy in the SB in previous decklists and it worked out pretty good but im not so sure here....thanks a lot for the input! Im gonna keep tinkering with the list!

ADD: Cold-Eyed Selkie Heroic Intervention Wood Elves Kamahl, Fist of Krosa Fierce Empath Song of the Dryads Bane of Progress Tishana, Voice of Thunder Natural Order Coat of Arms Hinterland Harbor Craterhoof Behemoth
After looking over your list I've picked out some cards that I would cut if it were my deck, but if you like them then play them anyways. You definitely need more win cons so I've suggested some cards that will allow you to convert your board advantage into a win. Craterhoof would find a home in this deck for certain but if that isn't your style then maybe Coat of Arms might be more your thing. Tishana, Voice of Thunder would also be a really good addition to this deck with all the card advantage she provides and the no maximum hand size is always nice. Also I suggested Song of the Dryads as good removal but also as a cute little way to give your opponent a Forest to use all your Forestwalk abilities. If you have any questions about any of the suggestions or cuts feel free to ask.
